STATEMENT FROM NYC CHARTER SCHOOL CENTER CEO JAMES MERRIMAN ON CHANCELLOR FARIÑA’S DEPARTURE

(New York, NY) Please credit the following statement to James Merriman, CEO of the New York City Charter School Center (Charter Center):

“Chancellor Fariña, or Carmen as she prefers to be known, didn’t always see eye to eye with the charter sector. But because of her leadership, over time we forged a good working relationship that resulted in unprecedented collaboration and cooperation between the sector and the district. We hope that the next Chancellor will build on this foundation, and put in place policies that treat charters as full partners in the shared endeavor of giving every child an opportunity to receive a first rate public education.”
